In order to set up as a host you need to do the following:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address you want to use for the host-user . We suggest using a generic (info@ ops@) so that it can be forwarded or access by more than one person. This is the email address that will allow the host to approve/reject/pay expenses, refresh the paypal pre-approval key and manually add funds to the collective.
Once we create the host user you need to log in to https://opencollective.com/host-user/settings (replace host-user with the username of your host) and connect Stripe and Paypal.
That’s it! Once you connect both accounts, the contribution buttons will turn green and your collective will be fully active.
